Name of creator
Nikolay Medtner was born on January 5, 1880 in Moscow. He studied piano with his mother until the age of 10 when he entered the Moscow Conservatory. After graduating from the conservatory in 1900, he quickly turned to composition and many of his pieces were performed by his friend and fellow pianist/ composer, Sergei Rachmaninoff. He moved to London, England in 1936, where he remained until his death in 1951.
